Samsung makes that set . They are notorious for leaking fluid onto the picture tube socket or the chassis. I do believe this is your chance to say goodby. Take it.

When tv shows dark picture or Lamp LED start flashing at front of tv then you need to replace Lamp.
Now let me know do you get blue screen on all video inputs or just on cable / antenna ?
It would be nice if can paste picture of tv showing problem to understand easily, like I'm pasting your tv picture as reference.

Thank you.

I have had three lamps since Nov 2006 in mine and I have a notice coming up on my Panasonic saying I need to change the lamp right now. Which is strange, because before there was no warning, it worked fine and then when we went to turn it on again, it just did not work until the lamp was replaced.

No Picture

Did you have color problems in past? Most of these sets have convergence problems. Amps goes out. But you should have seen some type of distortion from color, red,blue, green. If no color problems then maybe vertical ouput out or horizontal output bad.
